October 4th The Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi… Good St. Francis, you loved all of God’s creatures.
 To you they were your brothers and sisters.
 Help us to follow your example 
of treating every living thing with kindness.
 St. Francis, Patron Saint of animals,
 watch over my pet 
and keep my companion safe and healthy.
